As well as a building permit, you may require further permits or approvals before starting your building works. These approvals (excluding the crossover permit) must be obtained and provided to your building surveyor before the Building Permit can be issued.
Planning Permit - For use and/or development of the building or land
Siting Variation - When a building design does not comply with the building regulation siting requirements, you will need to apply for Council Consent (often known as dispensation)
Owner Builder Consent - If you are an owner builder and the value of works will be over $16,000, you will need a Certificate of Consent from the Victorian Building Authority. Value of works must include all materials and labour at a commercial value. For more information on owner builder consent, visit www.vba.vic.gov.au.
Demolition Consent - For demolition or removal of a building (including partial).
Septic System - Approval to install and use a septic system/domestic wastewater management system
Crossover Permit - For installation or alteration to crossovers for a driveway.
